2nd Trimester

has anyone ever had a uti while pregnant?

I really need to use the bathroom but cant go. I've only had 1 uti and that was last year.  I'm 16 weeks pregnant today. 

Re: has anyone ever had a uti while pregnant?

  • They are very, very common. I would call your doctor in the morning to have a test in case.
    Sept 2013 started TTC#2 (never got PP period so hoping for the first egg to drop)
    Jan 2014 - diagnosed POF (Premature Ovarian Failure) and told pregnancy not possible without egg donor because my ovaries would never function again with my hormone levels (FSH 136, LH 98.6, AMH <.03, estradiol 0, HCG 7) - using acupuncture, chiropractic care and TCM herbs / supplements
    March 11, 2014 ovulated despite every doctors prognosis!!!
    Oct 2014 hormones (FSH 48, Estradiol 89, HCG 1) not good, but heckuva lot better!

  • Yes..unfortunately I'm on meds for one right now...apparently they are very common during pregnancy because your uterus is cramping the space for the bladder and certain crevices etc can be cut off allowing bacteria to collect easier then normal...

     I went and had a urinalysis done but have been on meds for about a week and am starting to feel better, the most annoying thing is the pressure in your abdomen...


    Go see your doc and drink lots of cranberry juice :)

  • I had one the week I found out I was pregnant. They put me on antibiotics and everything was fine. I called my OB rather than my PCP because I knew they would have a better idea of what was safe while I was pregnant. Hope you feel better soon!

  • I had one, my OB caught it in my lab work- and they gave me a prescription and it was in my first trimester. If they weren't going to give me something my PCP would have.

    Get it tested to prove, and they can give you an antibiotic that will work with the baby. Try and relax.

  • Yes! My doc said they are quite common in pregnancy . I have had two with this pregnancy. This is is our first baby, so of course I was freaking out a bit, haha! . Definitely get checked out. It's just a simple urine test and they will just put you on an antibiotic that is safe to take while pregnant. ( just double check and ask them if it is safe to take ). Take Care! 
    through suffering and sorrow comes peace beyond belief for pur present set of circumstances serve only to remind us of the Gold we cant yet see...
  • I had one last month. Go to the Dr. and get some meds for it and you should be ok within a week or so!! :)) I didn't even know I had one until I went into the hospital one night for my nausea. BLEH They kind of suck, I know :(
